The Last Star is the heart-stopping finale to the bestselling 5th Wave series by award-winning author, Rick Yancey. Perfect for fans of The Hunger Games, Divergent and The Maze Runner.

‘Wildly entertaining . . . I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough’ The New York Times

We’re here, then we’re gone, and that was true before they came. That’s always been true. The Others didn’t invent death; they just perfected it. Gave death a face to put back in our face, because they knew that was the only way to crush us. It won’t end on any continent or ocean, no mountain or plain, jungle or desert. It will end where it began, where it had been from the beginning, on the battlefield of the last beating human heart.

Master storyteller Rick Yancey invokes triumph, loss, and unrelenting action as the fate of the planet is decided in the conclusion to this epic series.

I personally really enjoyed the 5th Wave, the first novel in this series and I have the Infinite Sea in my possession I just haven’t read it yet. I have heard some mixed things about the Infinite Sea, I really hope I enjoy it and then can finish this series off with the Last Star. I personally am a huge sci-fi nerd and I love a good alien book/series, so I really hope the Last Star will be an awesome finale to this series!

Also, it comes out the day after my birthday so that’s always fun! It’s like a birthday present from me for myself haha.

    • It’s probably a great series to marathon! I read the 5th Wave last month so its almost like marathoning it 😂
      You too!! 🙂


  1. Since I recently watched (and actually LOVED) the film, I’m curious about this series. I judged the movie as a production, not adaptation, so I’m certainly curious to discover what the books are all about (even though most who read the book say the film is not great). 🙂

    Happy (early) birthday, Belle. Buying a book is always a WONDERFUL way to celebrate!

    • I personally watched the movie after having read the book, as an adaptation I did not enjoy it. Maybe the other way around is a better way to go about it 😉
      Thankyouu! Haha buying books is the best way to celebrate anything, I always find an excuse 😜
